Have you ever noticed those signs out the front of churches that try to lure people in with witty phrases? They annoy the hell out of me. They come in one of only two styles: the really bad pun or the holy superiority complex. This comes down, I suppose, to the basic fact that church leaders are not often known for their expertise in stand up, yet they are known for having a serious superiority complex. Of course, there are plenty of decent folk out there leading churches, but they are few and far between and don’t seem to be the ones writing these signs.

I plan to draw attention to some of the worst offenders here on The Word as often as I find them. They do seem to be very prevalent around Sydney. If you find a good one, send me a pic and I’ll put it on here. It’s word abuse of the worst kind really, so I’m not above mocking it.
